Stop using Google Chrome.

Google Chrome is moving to remove autonomy from Web users. Excuse me while I purge it from my machines. Please remember - it’s a “open source” “project” (commerically provided product) whose goal is to not to “affect our [Google’s] ability to customize ads and/or could block ads online, which would harm our business” (from their SEC 10-K filing).

Google Chrome is not built for people; it’s built for Google, by Google. You are their bank.

@jalcine Alternates to Chrome that run all the extensions and apps I have for chrome? Otherwise, can't switch.

@maverynthia I didn't know - that's why I asked. I don't use Chrome (haven't in ~4 years) but I'm sure there's equivalent ones at addons.mozilla.org since the extension API are the same now.

@jalcine I rather not because it's going to be a long list of "Well use this this and this" and a response of "It doesn't have feature ABC"
Also one of the same extentions for Firefox just doesn't... work So there's that.

@maverynthia

Wait so you don't wanna hear that but you almost had me do that for you?

Okay.
